In the Jordan Park, by Krakowskie Błonia, there is the biggest ice rink in Poland. It’s divided into 3 zones: a large ice rink, a rink for children, and an ice alley.

  • Krakow Aquapark – However, if we prefer summer attractions, it’s worth thinking about a visit to Krakow’s Aquapark. Exotic palm trees, a rushing river, plenty of extreme slides are just some attractions you can find there. In addition to water activities you can also use the climbing walls and saunarium or gym.
  • The local zoo invites families with children to an intimate tour with educators. During the tour, participants will learn about animals that are not afraid of winter, as well as winter masters of camouflage”. Of course, this is also a great opportunity to walk and spend time outdoors, in the heart of Wolski Forest. After observing the animals, you can make your own interpretations from the snow.
